Male Models Needed – Open Call

Open Call for Male Models

I am working on increasing my model portfolio for the use on book covers, Gay Romance book covers to be specific.  I am seeking Male models for this job.  If you are not comfortable with your image on the cover of a gay romance novel, please don’t reply.

Individuals and Couples Wanted

I have room for sessions with both individuals and couples.

If you are wondering the kind of modeling I am talking about, peruse the Gay Romance section on  For your initial session, you will provide your own wardrobe and makeup.

Full nudity will not be required.  Bare chests and legs are a plus if you are comfortable with that.  I will work with your comfort level. Couple sessions will involve “intimate” poses, but again no full nudity.

Initial session will be at my Studio in The Woodlands, Texas area.

The first shoot will involve an flat hourly rate.  If we work well together and you are well received, rates can be renegotiated for future sessions.  Timing is dependent on your schedule and mine.  There will be another adult present during all initial shoots.

If you are interested please email me at brandilyn AT photographybybrandilyn DOT com with the subject Re: Model Shoot. You can also use the contact form.

Let me know if The Woodlands location does not work for you.  We can find another public location for the session.

Cosplay portrait mini-sessions this September in Atlanta, Georgia.

I am offering Cosplay Portrait mini-sessions before, during, and after Dragoncon 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.

A Mini-Session is a low cost way to get professional portraits at a fraction of the cost.  Mini-Sessions have the goal of 1-2 images which are delivered electronically.  You will receive a print release to allow you to print the photos, or you may purchase prints from me for an additional fee.

Prices are as follows:

  • $50 each for one person
  • $75 for two people
  • $100 for groups of 3-5
  • Groups larger than that please contact me for a quote.

I accept Paypal as well as Credit Cards via Square.

If you want a full session, contact me for availability and rates.

If you will not be dressing up, but are in need of professional headshots, I can accommodate that as well.  You can see some of my previous headshots here.

Headshots at in Atlanta during RT

Because I have been asked a number of times. I will be available before and during my stay in Atlanta for RT for headshot sessions. I am working on securing a location for Tuesday.

I have 7 sessions. I am not 100% sure on locations right now, weather, space, permits, etc will all be a factor. But I looked at my schedule while I am in Atlanta and found some times I can use for mini sessions. These mini sessions have a goal of 1-3 usable digital images and will cost $50. Trust me this is a steal for professional headshots. I can take up to 5 people per session and you can sign up below.

DSP Conference wrap up

I recently was asked to be the event photographer for the Dreamspinner Press’ annual author workshop.  I also did headshots for many of the authors while I was there.  First of all I would like to offer a huge THANK YOU to Elizabeth North and crew for having me.

Let me share a few of the shots from the weekend.

If you want to see more you can see the headshots here.
